Watch St. Louis From 1984 Until Now with Google Timelapse


By lauradud84 / / Timelapse is a global, zoomable video that lets you see how the Earth has changed over the past 32 years. It is made from 33 cloud-free annual mosaics, one for each year from 1984 to 2016, which are made interactively explorable by Carnegie Mellon University CREATE Lab’s Time Machine library, a technology for creating and viewing zoomable and pannable timelapses over space and time. Zoom in around Forest Park to watch the developments happen. Or head out to West County and watch the McMansion-filled neighborhoods spread like herpes.
